. recent "saturday night live" skit mocking health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius was spot on. >> millions of americans are visiting healthcare.gov, which is great news. unfortunately the site was only designed to handle six users at a time. [ laughter ] >> in total, 248 people enrolled in obama care nationwide by the end of day two according to an internal obama administration memo obtained by that oversight committee. adding to the list of white house whos is the fact that the vast majority of those signing up on state exchanges are signing up for medicaid while a much smaller number are signing up for private insurance, the administration says it will release official enrollment numbers in mid november, but, if the numbers are as bad as these reports suggest, what will the president do? joining me now to react from washington, d.c., democrat strategist julian epstein. julian, six? you couldn't make this up. if i had said six, they would call me crazy, racist, who know what is they would call me. six. >> i'm the first to acknowledge that there have been a lot of problems
sebelius with hur fingers crossed and a tech guy with a floppy disk. my guess julie is folks at the white house are not laughing. how concerned are they about this rollout? not just the website but the whole deal. what is their biggest concern? >> that they are in this holding pattern. no one expects the website will be fixed over the next couple of days. november 30 seems like a fairly conservative estimate by some accounts. all we're seeing now is more website problems and more problems with the actual policy. if the conversation switches to the policy away from the website that becomes even more dangerous. there's nothing that they can say to refute that now because people can't log on to the website. they can't see what kind of payments they're going to be making. all they're having to deal with is criticism not just from republicans but democrats. >> a promise that wasn't a promise? >> they feel like that was maybe a risk they took at the time and now they're having to take a hit for it but it was worth it given the amount of criticism they were taking early on for the law. it has ce
sebelius is not happy about that. and that is why we have dedicated these focus resources to fixing the existing problems. >> reporter: the administration is now having to answer questions about new reports surfacing that millions of americans will get letters of cancellation on their existing individual health care plans because they won't allegedly meet the requirements of the health care overhaul. the administration is saying that -- the reports are saying the administration knew that this would happen. the president meantime stands by health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius. he is heading to boston to talk about the implementation of the affordable care act. secretary sebelius is getting ready to answer questions from lawmakers here on capitol hill tomorrow but first the medicare chief who is thought to be responsible for healthcare.gov and its launch will be answering questions today. back to you. >> ko im, thank you, reporting live from health and human services headquarters. >>> parts of the strict new abortion law in texas have been declared unconstitutional. a

sketch and parody of health secretary kathleen sebelius. she said the website was only designed to handle six users at a time and it got a laugh on saturday night. then figures came out released by republicans yesterday showing only six americans actually did sign up during the website's entire first day of operations. the obama administration fought back today. they said those figures are not official. they say the pace of enrollment will pick up and new numbers will be released later this month. >>> a story from medicine making news tonight. the march of dimes says premature births in the u.s. have fallen to a 15-year low, mostly because of better health, better health care. but sadly the u.s. still ranks worst among the nations in the developing world. >>> and a man who has always dispensed medical care his way has retired. there may never be anyone like dr. russell donor of rushville, illinois. we profiled him last year in our "making a difference" segment. he was called the $5 doctor locally. because that's all he ever charged for an office visit. he is ending his practice and his cl

the site crashed two times this week. kathleen sebelius said the website has cost $174 million so far and more probably to fix it. >>> starting today $5 billion is cut from the food stamp program. that means less grocery money for millions. the cuts will vary by family but this is typically a family of four getting 668 a month would lose about $36. food stamp benefits were raised during the recession and temporary increase to the program and that expires today. in 2007, 26 million people were using snap as they call it, supplemental food benefits and compared that to almost 48 million now. 15% of the american population is using government assistance to help feed their family. $36 a month is going to hurt some people. people who work for food banks are upset about these cuts. others say this was meant to be a temporary measure and that temporary measure is now over. you'll hear more about that. >>> are you -- when you fly, are you going to be irritating with your devices now you're able to use them or a good citizen? >> i'm always a good citizen. >> i'm so glad nobody can chat on thei
